For many travelers, the start of a great Hawaiian vacation begins on the island of Oahu, and in the state capital of Honolulu. At the heart of the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu offers a diverse blend of cultures and lifestyles that are all bound together by the Aloha Spirit. The energetic epicenter of Honolulu is a hot spot for art, culture and entertainment. From the spirited nightlife, live music and fine dining of Waikiki to the art galleries and underground bars of the Chinatown district, make time to explore this Hawaiian metropolis. Accommodations on Oahu vary from classic beach resorts to condos and secluded hideaways.
Home to the state capital, Honolulu, this popular island is a vibrant gathering spot with iconic settings, including world-famous Waikiki Beach and historic Pearl Harbor. Ringed by 100 world-renowned beaches, adventurers, families, history buffs, shoppers and foodies will love everything Oahu has to offer.
- West Coast Slide 1 of 3: The rugged beauty of the Oahu’s western coastline may surprise you with its long stretches of sand and vast mountain ranges.
- Iolani Palace Slide 2 of 3: Visit the only official royal palace in the U.S.— Iolani Palace — to learn about Hawaiian royalty.
- Sunset Beach Slide 3 of 3: Sunset Beach is an amazing snorkeling spot in the summer, and in the winter, it's the perfect place to watch big-wave surfers in action.
Dive into the heart of Hawaii. Learn to ride the waves in Waikiki, where surfing was born. Savor the local flavors at the hottest farm-to-table restaurants. Browse the latest designer and local fashions in open-air markets. Or, hit the links at one of a plethora of spectacular golf courses, ranging from lush public links to elegant resort courses.
Hike up to Diamond Head crater, catch a big-wave surf competition on the North Shore, or enjoy the spectacular entertainment of a luau. Beyond the surf, sea and fairways, discover historic places with unique stories to tell like Pearl Harbor, Aloha Tower, Bishop Museum and the Iolani Palace — the only royal palace on American soil and former home of Queen Lili'uokalani.
For savvy shoppers, Honolulu is home to the world’s largest outdoor mall, Ala Moana Center. Shoppers will also enjoy the local boutiques along the North Shore, or for a modest shopping experience, check out the swap meet at Aloha Stadium.
If all this activity makes you hungry, there’s plenty of lip-smacking options to choose from. Oahu offers a variety of flavors, from trendy, farm-to-table restaurants to off-the-beaten-path eateries. Or, if you prefer a casual atmosphere, you can eat like a local in small neighborhoods like Kapahulu, just minutes from Waikiki. Be sure to take in a fun luau during your visit. Luaus are a popular way to get a glimpse of the island’s local culture, where Polynesian cuisine blends with festive entertainment and Hawaiian hospitality. Savor roast pig, lomi lomi salmon or poi (fermented root of the taro plant). Sip on a Mai Tai cocktail at sunset, watching a graceful hula.
